This bug has been reported as Debian bug #245840:
Some developers thought, that this might be exploitable. I did not yet have the time to take a look at it. Please check yourself.
This is quite an old report, and the code mentioned has changed since then.
It also seems it does not apply anymore - see http://bugs.python.org/issue883495.
I am inclined to close this issue, unless given a good reason to revive it.
Closing this as no objections were raised.
